Since tha last update to
Code:
xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.3.0:0
the applet icon doesn't show up in the notification area.

Downgrading to
Code:
xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.2.0-r2:0
resolves the problem - the icon is visible again and functional.

Anyone else having this issue ?

my system is Thinkpad Edge Laptop with

default/linux/x86/13.0 profile
and all the current stable packages from the portage tree.

Thanks for any response !

Mmm, I think it might be intentional. Looking a bit into it, I noticed that now there's a battery applet that wasn't there before. If I add it to the panel then I can reach the power management dialog by using it (preferences).

The dialog is much like before, but with several more options.

It seems that the regular app migrated to a daemon + an xfce4 panel applet.

You are correct. Upstream removed the system tray completely in favour of using the "Action Buttons" panel plug-in from xfce-base/xfce4-panel which uses xfce-base/xfce4-session.
And like you pointed out, new battery plug-in was created too.

Code:

$ qfile -b -v libactions.so
xfce-base/xfce4-panel-4.11.0 (/usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/libactions.so)
$ qfile -b -v libxfce4battery.so
xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.3.0 (/usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/libxfce4battery.so)
$ qfile -b -v libxfce4brightness.so
xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.3.0 (/usr/lib64/xfce4/panel/plugins/libxfce4brightness.so)


All of this means of course that xfce4-power-manager is less usable outside of Xfce (but more usable inside of Xfce)

I am not that sure now it's more usable in xfce :P

For a starter I just checked (the hard way) that it won't suspend my laptop when the battery is discharged.

I can't be sure the previous version worked though. This is a new install so there's a chance.

In any case, the mate power management tool works, so I am sure the backend is working ok.

Yeah - Thank you guys !

It is the "Battery indicator plugin comprising the functionality of the power management applet.

Sadly it didnt start up automatically with the new session, so I simply had to add it to the panel.

Code:
equery f xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.3.0:0
....
/usr/lib
/usr/lib/xfce4
/usr/lib/xfce4/panel
/usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins
/usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins/libxfce4battery.so
/usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins/libxfce4brightness.so

....

Subject solved ;-)
